AirTies devices on the same network usually communicate wirelessly with each other, while one of them has wired internet access. But it is also possible to give wired internet access to several of the access points. This is called Ethernet mesh.
Ethernet Mesh provides an even better and more predictable user experience, because wired Internet access is far less vulnerable to interference than wireless signals.
This solution can be especially beneficial in homes where it is difficult to get good wireless communication between devices, for example, when placing one device in a garage or annex, or between floors where the building materials may block the signals.
Ethernet mesh requires:
If you are setting up an AirTies network for the first time, follow the common network setup instructions. You get Ethernet mesh by giving two or more access points wired internet connections. All access points in a mesh do not need to have wired connections, and we do not recommend having wired connections for more than four.
To give your devices wired internet access, you can use:
With wired internet access, the device no longer needs to be able to reach the other devices in the same mesh wirelessly, but it is equally important to allocate them in the home so that they provide the best coverage for clients in any room. See also the AirtTes placement guide.
